Neat little story of a failed car of the sixties, I had never heard of, under developed, and failed!! GM, learn from it :)

"America is getting behind General Motors. That’s why you’ll see so much press on the Volt. We want to be at the forefront of automotive technology, and we haven’t had a homerun in a while. With that kind of pressure comes a great responsibility to make sure that it is keeping its eyes on the big picture.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This George Santayana quote is so over used I almost hate myself for using it, but when thinking about the Chevrolet Volt, it’s too appropriate to discard. General Motors is bringing a revolutionary idea to the hybrid car market by using lithium-ion batteries to make an electric car that has a supplemental gas engine. It’s a leap forward that reminds me of another revolutionary car, the NSU Ro 80."

Good read- hopefully GM won't have this problem with the Volt.

BTW- your title needs proofreading.
